Crazy What You Could've Had
A Promise To Keep.
Despite my soon-to-be-explained fatigue, I promised
somebody (a little wave goes up at this point, and
a "Hullo!") that I'd post up this form & answers tonight.
It was a pleasure filling it in, and I hope my not-too-
sarcastic answers fall on sympathetic ears.

one of the new sofas last time I phoned home.

-Eyes: Blue/green hybrid. Man, I've not thought
about that since Year 9 German!

Northern wool-town that is the victim of terrible
recession. Its dying.

flat, quiet and slow. And it has a university that does

impending doom as ever.

-Distinguishing marks: Hahaha! Scar across nose - not large

the moment. Got it when I was 5 or 6.

If I'm at home a glass of port always goes well

desert man. My sister got those genes.

house. I could make so much money back, and give me & the
guys a little less worry. It'd be brilliant.
-You collect: R.E.M. stuff. 54 things as we speak. I've
also got a large collection of 'last' yoghurts. The ones no-
one else dare eat, y'know.
-Your strangest possession: I don't know. A 2 inch Marcus
Stewart? A soup shop loyalty card? A Coin of 'No Cash
-Your most expensive possession: Computer? Isn't really
mine. Alfie's single goes for about £50-75 now - the
-Your Morals: Are very Christian, moreso really. I don't
know. I blame my Grandparents.

keep thinking I ought to be. Just to straighten a few
things out. Iron a few things.
-If reincarnation does exist, you'd like to come back as: A
crow. A blackbird. That kind of thing. I guess
Ornithelestes is out of the question...it no longer
-The right to have an abortion: Keep it. Think of rape. I
wouldn't like to have to do it - could I? I don't know.
That's a whole other question.
-The right to own guns: No. Waste of time, effort,
paperwork, and ultimately life.
-The death penalty: Yes. More widely. Its a great thing. So
it can be wrong? Can't everything.
-Legalization of drugs: If there was some way of
guaranteeing that under 18s didn't get their hands on them,
